Just wanted to update this thread that we are doing an experiment right now with Stream Display Ads! These are less disruptive ads that allow viewers to see and hear Creators while being displayed. Creators will receive ad revenue for each SDA shown. You can find out more information here: https://twitter.com/TwitchSupport/status/1603148201489580032

I was just about to send a feedback ticket about this, but got directed to look in the uservoice thing and seen people talking about it too. Ads that take over the stream itself are indeed abysmal.
When watching someone, you end up missing things because an ad shows and blocks out the whole stream. It's not like you can add them in a VOD and when the ad ends it just resumes where you left off. You literally lose a chunk of the stream. If it was a tense/vital moment you miss, it's even worse.
Also, when you merely go to a stream, an ad plays. That makes it difficult to jump around checking people out to see if I'd like to stay because you have to wait 30 seconds to get to the stream itself. If I don't like the streamer, I will have essentially funded the person I don't like and wasted my time to boot.
So Twitch absolutely has to get rid of the ads in the stream itself as there's no good way to do it.
